Paper Honeycomb Christmas Ornament Tutorial

Paper Ornament

Paper Ornament

Hi everyone! In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating a honeycomb Christmas ornament out of paper!

 

It looks quite complex, but is actually very easy! The most time consuming part is just cutting the pieces, and if you have a cutting machine such as a Cricut, you’ll have it made in no time at all!

Difficulty: Easy

Materials:

  • Paper – try to get the thinnest paper you can. This works great with doubled sided paper, as both sides will show – but unfortunately it is hard to find thin paper of this kind. I just used single sided thin scrapbook paper, which works just fine!
  • Glue – I used my go-to hot glue, and it worked great. Feel free to try other adhesives, but it needs hold strong.
  • Scissors
  • String or ribbon for the hanger
  • Pencil

Honeycomb Ornament Pattern (For cutting by hand) You’ll need to cut 18 of these, which took about 3 sheets of 12×12 paper for me.

 

Here is the .PNG for use with cutting machines:

 

 

Merry Christmas!

Interlocking Christmas Tree Paper Gift Box Tutorial

Christmas Tree Gift Box

Christmas Tree Gift Box

In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating a paper interlocking christmas tree gift box!

 

I’ve been seeing cool gift boxes with interlocking closures on Pinterest, and I came up the idea to make one with a Christmas tree!

Difficulty: Easy (but it takes a little practice to easily open and close the box)

Time needed: ~20 minutes

Materials:

  • Card stock or other paper with some thickness to it (you can make this with thinner paper, it just works much better with thicker paper)
  • Some sort of scoring tool, I use this one
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Hot glue (I always prefer hot glue for these kind of things because it holds strong and fast, but feel free to try other types of glue)
